Sometimes when those of us choosing concealed carry are staying at a hotel, you need to store your pistol when going to the pool or having a few beers with friends etc... Out of town youth sports presents a few challenges. Often your child is hanging out with other kids, which makes it absolutely necessary that your pistol is secured. The last thing you want is to allow access to a pistol when your child is hanging with their friends in your room. One option I use is of course the portable gun safe (lockable metal TSA approved box) that can be secured with a cable to something solid in the room or around the seat base in your vehicle. The other option is if your hotel has its own in-room safe. Whatever method you use just make sure that you prevent any unauthorized person from gaining access to your firearms.
I have over 26 years experience in law enforcement. I have over 15 years as a firearms instructor. I first obtained my concealed pistol license in 1999. I started Practical Gun Defense in July of 2017, offering the people of Baraga, Houghton, Ontonagon, and Marquette Counties in Michigan's Upper Peninsula practical CPL classes. The courses I offer are certified by the NRA National Rifle Association and MCRGO the Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Ownership.
